M-NCPPC Seeks Community Input on the US Route 1 Land Redevelopment Study
On Wednesday, March 15, 2023, the Prince George’s County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park, and Planning Commission hosted an open house and community meeting at the Beltsville Community Center to engage residents and stakeholders and to receive input that would be useful in developing recommendations for improvement of the US Route 1 Land Redevelopment Study. The study looks at the 2010 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for Subregion 1 and the area along the Route 1 Corridor boundary from Quimby Avenue to Sunnyside Avenue, adjacent to the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center and the immediate surrounding neighborhoods.
M-NCPPC will host a workshop later this spring and seeks participation and feedback from the community to help create recommendations for future development that will align with the approved master plan and sectional map amendment. By providing input at the workshop or through an online survey, residents and business stakeholders will help develop a strategy to improve the coordination among the commercial and industrial uses with the surrounding neighborhoods and enhance the visual appearance of the area and ensure a pedestrian-friendly environment that is a safe and enjoyable place to walk.
